Don't cry. What you are going through is called life. So you lost it on your tracking today. The great thing is that in another several hour you have a brand new today with no mistakes in it. And yesterday will be long gone.

My suggestion is to go buy a video that is easy and you like to do. I bought one of each kind of exercise video one year and tried them all, my fav ended up being "Beginners bellydancing" I did it everynight at 8pm, if I hadnt got myself to move before then. I ended up at goal wt in 6 mos. Fill the house w/low cal munchies too. smartheart popcorn, vegi sticks etc.

Northwoods it got chilly here too, a cold front came in and it is windy too. I know after a few days of 90 degrees than down to 36, I hope my flowers don't die...keep a positive attitude and, stay in and jump rope.
Take time to THINK...It is the source of power.Take Time to READ..It is the fountain of wisdom. Take time to PRAY..It is the greatest power on earth. Take Time to LOVE and BE LOVED..It is a God-given privilege. Be FRIENDLY, It is the road to happiness.. take time to LAUGH..it is the music of the soul. Take time to Give it is too short a day to be selfish.. Take time to DO CHARITY.. it is the key to heaven. I live in El Paso, TX
Northwoods sorry about the snow. Even if you only log in and stick your tongue out, Sparking will become a habit and then when you and the weather are in tune it will be easier to watch the calories and get moving outside.

Challenges are what make life full of stress and anxiety and overcoming them is what can wear you out. Stay stong.
Don't stay down, every storm runs out of rain. Just like every night runs out of dark and turns into day.

Hi NORTHWOOD62!! I live in Alberta so I can really empathize with you! I am a BC coast girl and this has been my first Alberta winter. It started in October and has managed to get over 40 only a few days in April. Today is was actually up to 70 for a bit in the afternoon...that was almost as much of shock as the snowfall last weekend. During the winter I really lost my stride and it is taken more effort than I expected to get myself going again. Even today when I went walking I had to really talk myself through staying out there for my 2 miles. They say we can still get more snowfalls too but I decided today to take advantage of a spring day...finally...and I am glad. Sorry about the birds...that is a challenge. Hope your weather takes a hike so you can too! ...and you will meet your goal...
I was doing so well -- started with Spark People on April 13 -- even though we still had 3 more major snowstorms here in the northwoods of Wisconsin -- I kept at it -- did not get down -- however, when, after several days of 60+ degree weather, we were blasted with a snowstorm today of nearly 12 inches -- I lost it. Can't walk in this stuff, and I just plain gave up on counting calories -- going to go to bed soon so I can wake up with a little bit of a better attitude -- the little walk I did take with my dog -- well I scared him -- as I was yelling at the weather!! Poor birds and other little creatures they are desperate today. If I find another dead robin tomorrow -- I WILL CRY!! Must calm myself down now and remember that this too shall pass -- have to lose my 24 pounds before the end of the year!!!
